look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

a: No head at first, then a monster tsunami of carbonation released to form a two inch tan head which hung on for a few minutes! Quite dense lacing which also stayed with it all through consumption! Dayum!

s: Dark malt, hint of chocolate.

t: More strong coffee than chocolate, more bitter than sweet. Smooths out somewhat later to a slightly more dark chocolaty bitterness.

m: Medium to heavy, velvety feel but the bitterness stands out.

o: Doesn't quite live up to the hype and rating for me, but then I'm not the biggest fan of really bitter beer. Still a standout brew for the kickass appearance and tastebud punch, which cover the high ABV pretty well.
